The wedding was to begin at 6PM. I asked Encore String Quartet to begin playing at 5PM and play until 5:45PM. They did not begin until 5:17PM and our organist cut her program short so the quartet could get in as much playing time before the service. We had the quartet stop playing at about 5:53PM. Considering the timing and the 200+ guests in attendance, the wedding had to start on time. The quartet did play after the service as requested for the additional 15 minutes. The contract was for 1 hour total.
